In a rather unsurprising development, three of Alabama’s more talented players are declaring themselvese eligible for the 2012 NFL draft.
LB Donta’ Hightower, RB Trent Richardson and CB Dre Kirkpatrick have all elected to forgo their final season of eligibility to turn pro. Kirkpatrick is widely thought to be the most highly rated of the three as he’s forecast by most to be a first-round pick. Richardson is also likely to be a first-round draft choice.
